Hi everyone,

Does the flight of a Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo differ from that of a
Glossy Black Cockatoo?

The reason I ask is that I saw 2 Black Cockatoos flying over Neutral Bay
yesterday morning around 8:30. I couldn't tell what type of Cockatoo they
were, but I thought at the time that their movements were very slow. Almost
too slow to fly.

I remember thinking at the time that perhaps they were flying slower than I
remember seeing Yellow-tailed Cockatoos fly, and if that was true, then
perhaps they might have been Glossies?

So my question is, is there any way to tell by the flight of a Black
Cockatoo what type it may be?
